Yep! University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (Go Fighting Phoenix!) senior forward Mike King is going to the 2004 Olympics (or at least this month's Olympic qualifying tourney in Puerto Rico) as a part of Team Canada.
Finally...the high-caliber player they needed to compliment the inexperienced Steve Nash.
The Guelph, Ontario native was also on Team Canada's Pan-American Games squad, making him UWGB's 2nd ever Pan-Am player (the other being Tony Bennett, former San Antonio Spur and son of the now-Washington State coach Dick Bennett, for Team USA in 1991.)
Proud of King, and to be a UWGB alumnus I am...but I'm still rooting for Team USA. (You Canucks rigged the ice in Salt Lake City anyway!)
May as well do these posts in this format, hm? First and foremost, All Star Weekend~!. Fire up your TiVos or VCR or whatever. I must say I still don't understand how Vince Carter keeps getting so many votes.
